Top 3D InCites Podcast Episodes of 2022

I got the notification while I was visiting with my family in Vermont over Christmas: Congratulations from Buzzsprout for 7500 podcast downloads! I was very excited because, in the podcast world, that’s a significant achievement. Did you know that there are over 2.4 million podcasts with over 66 million episodes between them? That’s a lot of content to choose from!

In fact, according to Buzzsprout research, in the first seven days of release, only the top 1% of podcasts get more than 3,994 downloads, and only the top 50% get more than 30 downloads. These days, we’re coming in regularly between the top 25% (93 downloads in seven days) and 50%. We’ve also published more than 50 episodes since we first launched in May of 2021.  We think this is something to celebrate.

So to close out Season 2 of the 3D InCites podcast, and wrap up 2022, we thought we’d list the top podcast episodes of 2022 based on the number of downloads. We also included our top five picks just in case you missed them.
